March 20, 2017   First day of spring

Friday, March 24   5 inches of heavy, wet snow  Driving requires extra care  Many activities cancelled

Friday March 31 into Saturday, April 1   7 inches of snow    Disruptions, same as above              We were lucky. Just south of us got more than a foot of snow in each storm.

And this  is only the snow that has arrived since spring “arrived.” Before that, week after week there were delayed openings and snow days. There were never the huge snowfalls of some years, but there were lots of snow storms.

The snow reminds me of the old fairy tale which in its several variations has a salt mill that won’t stop producing salt, a pot that won’t stop spitting out porridge, or a bucker that keeps overflowing with water. Here we have skies that keep dropping snow. If only we could remember the magic word that would make it stop.

I for one am suffering from TMS Syndrome: Too Much Snow. I need to see the green grass,  plants pushing up through the soil, a robin or two. I would wave the flag of surrender, but who could see it in the snow?
